At this time we are uncertain if Felon Voter Re-Enfranchisement will get a hearing on the bill in the House by the committee deadline less than two weeks away, March 27th. We need to let House Leadership know what kind of support this has. Please ask all of your members/clients/staff/board/supporters/friends to send messages by email and/or telephone.
House Speaker Representative Kurt Daudt- firstname.lastname@example.org. Telephone 651-296-5364.
House Majority Leader Representative Joyce Peppin- email@example.com. Telephone 651-296-7806.
Here's a sample script:
"Hi, my name is ______. I'm calling to ask for a hearing on felon voting rights restoration. 47,000 Minnesotans from all over the state currently can't vote because of a past offense, sometimes for decades. Restoring their right to vote would improve public safety and reduce future offenses. Please allow this vote a hearing. Thank you."
